Inarritu's debut feature is billed as 'the Mexican Pulp Fiction', a description which sells it short. The Tarantino comparison is a useful starting point: the film tells three overlapping stories – a teenager drawn into the world of illegal dog-fighting, the infidelity of a middle-aged media executive and an elderly homeless man – by using shifting time-frames, tangentially linked characters and jagged verbal rhythms. Fierce humanity underpins Inarritu's beautiful, grainy visuals and Guillermo Arriaga Jordan's multi-layered script.
